“Enormous volumes of freight will in effect switch terminal from one day to the next. It feels reassuring to be able to inform rail companies and other stakeholders at the port that the situation is completely under control. In December, it will simply be a case of all systems go,” said Magnus Nordfeldt, project leader at Gothenburg Port Authority.
Increased capacity and seven rail tracks
The new 65,000-square metre terminal is located beside the ro-ro terminals*. From there, trailers and other rolling goods can be transported by sea to the UK, Belgium and other destinations.
